Which airline is operating my flight?

Travel is easier when you know what to expect and plan ahead. From packing to security checks, arranging for special circumstances such as children, pets, medical equipment or musical instruments, here’s the information that you’ll need to know.

Change to Duty Free rules when flying into the U.S.

Effective January 31, 2014, TSA will allow duty free liquids through the security checkpoint in carry-on baggage if properly packaged in a security tamper-evident bag (STEB). Learn more about this new TSA rule.

The following applies to travel within the United States unless otherwise stated. Please check the chart on the Liquids and Gels tab for country-specific information for exceptions to the U.S policies. Our Reservations agents can assist with policies or information not covered.

How Much Can I Carry On?

Carry-On Bags Cannot Exceed 22 Inches Long, 14 Inches Wide And 9 Inches Tall

You can bring one small carry-on bag plus one personal item per passenger as long as the carry-on bag fits comfortably in the sizer without being forced and does not exceed overall dimensions of 45 inches (length + width + height).

The maximum dimensions cannot exceed any of the following measurements: 22″ long x 14″ wide x 9″ tall or 115cm (56 x 36 x 23 cm). All carry-on items should be stowed in an overhead bin.

Important Travel Information

AAdvantage® elite status members: Learn more about your checked baggage benefits.

Strollers that are large, non-collapsible or over 20 lbs. must be checked at the ticket counter. Learn more about traveling with infants or children.

Customers with pets traveling as checked baggage are required to present a valid health certificate. Learn more about traveling with pets.

If you’re checking a bag, be sure you are familiar with baggage cutoff times and check-in recommendations as well as security checkpoints, options for obtaining a boarding pass, premium security checkpoints and more. Learn more about Suggested Arrival Times.

Please note that more than one baggage charge may apply to a particular bag. For example a second checked bag that is overweight would incur both a second checked bag charge and an overweight bag charge. If that bag was also oversize, it would incur an oversize charge as well. Learn more about oversize and overweight bags.

Dimensions, Weight and Number of Bags

The size limitation of your luggage is calculated by adding the total outside dimensions of each bag, length + width + height.

Carry-on roller board bags, duffle bags, large backpacks, or other personal items that don’t fit in the overhead bins or under the seat must be checked at the gate and placed in the cargo compartment on American Eagle planes.

Transportation of the Deceased

The Jim Wilson Desk (1-800-228-7878) handles the transportation of your deceased loved ones, in coordination with a funeral home/director. Our Reservations personnel will make travel arrangements for escorts accompanying uncremated remains.

Cremated Remains
Cremated remains traveling with a passenger are handled in the same manner as carry-on baggage. No special documents are required for travel within the United States. For international travel, refer to that country’s consulate and/or burial advisor.

Crematory Containers
Certain crematory containers such as urns are unable to be screened at security checkpoints by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). An American Airlines airport agent may consult TSA personnel to determine if your container may be transported as carry-on or checked baggage. Please seek guidance from a funeral home to help determine if a particular crematory container will pose any difficulty at a TSA screening point.
